Santa Clara, Calif. – June 8, 2018 — Promex Chief Technology Officer Annette Teng will deliver a presentation on “Heterogeneous Integration Needs Heterogeneous Package Assembly” at the American Vacuum Society Northern California Chapter CMPUG/TFUG/PAG Joint Meeting on June 12 at SEMI Headquarters in Milpitas, California.
Heterogeneous Integration refers to the integration of separately manufactured components into a higher level assembly such as System-in-Package that, in the aggregate, provides enhanced functionality and improved operating characteristics. Increased functionality and miniaturization of devices need heterogenous assembly which requires innovative designs, processes and innovative materials on very small geometries. Dr. Teng will present some of the fundamental processes used by the electronics packaging industries to perform heterogenous assembly, including wafer thinning and singulation, die pick and vacuum assisted molding.
The American Vacuum Society Northern California Chapter CMPUG/TFUG/PAG Joint Meeting focuses on technologies and applications related to Advanced Packaging Technology. It will bring together leading researchers in academia, government, and industry with innovative technologies to nurture a free exchange of triumphs and challenges in packaging technology. The event runs from 12:00 – 5:00 pm at SEMI Headquarters, 673 South Milpitas Blvd. Milpitas, CA 95035. Dr. Teng’s presentation is at 2:10.
Earlier this month, Dr. Teng received the Electronic Packaging Society Regional Contributions Award for Outstanding Leadership, Impact on Programs and Growth. October 2017 she was the featured speaker at an IEEE event on wafer thinning and singulation — a critical process for successful miniaturization and high-density packaging. Dr. Teng compared dicing yields and cost of various die singulation techniques, including stealth laser, laser ablation, plasma etch and conventional rotary blade. Her white paper on the various ways Die Attach Film (DAF) can be implemented for complex microelectronic assemblies can be downloaded from the Promex Knowledge Center.
